In the spring and summer of 2016, progressives took a long, hard look at who they were in bed with. President Obama gave cabinet posts to Monsanto and to Goldman Sachs. Again and again, Hillary Clinton couldn't have possibly stooped lower to try and steal the nomination.
Now it's 2017. The Republicans own both houses of Congress and the Presidency, plus they have gerrymandered all the states within an inch of their lives. However, it's time for all good Republicans (yes, they exist) to see who they're in bed with.
Foremost, the anticommunists are entirely in bed with President-for-life Vladimir Putin, kissy kissy kissy pant pant pant. The permanence of this intimate relationship is going to sink in someday, and the results won't be particularly quiet. However, for now, utter denial reigns, so let's all sing "The Internationale" together, one, two, three...
As a sideshow, American Jews are in bed with a White House staff full of vocal Holocaust deniers, the genuine article. Yes, the Nazi Holocaust happened, and no, the White House took enormous care to avoid saying that Jews were in any way involved in the Nazi Holocaust. This attitude apparently starts right at the top. No, this isn't a Mel Brooks movie with the cast singing "Springtime for Hitler". Yes, the Nazi Party did lots of "Heil Trump" for his, um, courageous stand against Jewry. Again, the nature of this intimate companionship between Jews and American Nazis will eventually sink in, but not quite now. Denial is a river in Egypt.
The last bedtime liason is between devout Christians and the Donald himself. Christians are somewhat used to being cut dead by their own politicans, but, just trust me on this if you're a Christian, Trump is going to really hurt them like a bad tooth until he finally gets yanked.
Did I mention that Mr. Trump gave cabinet posts to Monsanto/Bayer and to Goldman Sachs?
